Deputyship under Mental Capacity Act – Fees from $2,900
Application to be a Deputy under the Mental Capacity Act
We frequently act for families who wish to apply for a court-appointed Deputy under the Mental Capacity Act (MCA) for a person who lacks mental capacity.
When a person does not have a Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA) and loses mental capacity or a person has special needs and suffers from learning and intellectual disability, family members may apply to the court to appoint a Deputy under the Mental Capacity Act (MCA). The Deputy is usually a family member who will make medical and other personal welfare decisions in that person’s best interests.
Apart from taking care of the person’s personal needs and financial affairs, the Deputy is also required to submit an annual report to the Office of Public Guardian to explain what decisions he/she had made for the person and how he/she had used the person’s monies.
If you are applying for a Mental Capacity Act Order that is generally restricted to the use of monies of S$60,000 and below

“My family and I are stoked that PKWA Family Law has helped us so much in the matter where MCA is concerned, we struggled with our previous lawyer who was not only sloppy in their work but defensive. A lot of time was wasted while the case was developing. When we switched to PKWA, we were wowed by the efficiency and responsiveness of all legal personnel involved in our matters. We saw the light at the end of the tunnel just within a timeframe of fewer than 2 months. Everything was swift and precise. Thank you, Charlene, Christina and Mingli for the hard work.”
